David Albers is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics who earned his bachelor’s in mathematics and bachelor’s, master’s, and PhD degrees in physics at the University of Wisconsin at Madison.

Experienced in nonlinear science and dynamical systems, Dr. Albers has recently aimed to apply these skills and methods to electronic health records and intensive care data, particularly looking at temporal changes. He has worked closely with Dr. George Hripcsak at the Department of Biomedical Informatics in these endeavors. His areas of interest also include nonlinear time-series analysis, learning theory, and statistical physics in combination with biomedical informatics and physiology.

Dr. Albers was selected for fellowships at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, the Santa Fe Institute, and the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences. He is a member of the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics, the American Medical Informatics Association, the American Mathematical Society, and the American Physical Society.
